Students Take the Fast Track to a Nursing Degree

The University is making it easier for college graduates to choose nursing as a career through new accelerated bachelor's and master's programs.

A plan approved by New York State makes Rochester one of only 25 schools in the country to offer the fast-track curricula. Administrators say the new programs will go a long way toward alleviating the effects of a predicted nursing shortage in coming years.

Students with a bachelor's degree can get a nursing degree in as little as a year if they have certain prerequisite courses such as microbiology and physiology. The master's program includes one year to earn the required bachelor's degree and two years of training that includes an intensive classroom component.
